PIXL VISN IS NEW PARTNER OF FOX RENDERFARM: WHY RENDERING IS SO IMPORTANT
Fox Renderfarm News
Fox Renderfarm is deeply committed to supporting education and wishes to contribute to the development of the CG industry. Which is why we’re proud to announce that Fox Renderfarm has built relationships with PIXL VISN Media Arts Academy and offers its students an affordable pricing scheme to support educational purposes. WHAT IS RENDERING?Rendering is the process of generating a photorealistic or non-photorealistic image from a 2D or 3D model by means of a computer program.Simply put, 3D rendering is the process of producing an image based on three-dimensional data stored on a computer. It is much like photographing or filming a virtual 3D scene.In the background, the rendering hardware and software have to do a massive amount of mathematical calculations in order to translate the 3D scene’s data into images. The entire look of the final render is therefore determined by the modeling, texturing, shading, lighting and animation information combined together and rendered, pixel by pixel.!Breitling Navitimer Watch © Fabrizio MeliBreitling Navitimer Watch © Fabrizio Meli FOX RENDERFARM WITH ENORMOUS COMPUTING POWERFox Renderfarm is a leading cloud rendering service provider in the industry. Since the operation in 2011, Fox Renderfarm has earned a good reputation for its quality performance, great customer service, and flexible pricing scheme. To build a more secure cloud render farm that better protects the privacy of our beloved customers, Fox Renderfarm has successfully completed MPAA’s Content Security Best Practices and officially become a TPN Trusted Partner!Fox Renderfarm has an outstanding team with over 20 years’ experience in the CG industry. Team members are from Disney, Lucasfilm, Dreamworks, Sony, etc. With professional services and industry-leading innovations, we serve leading VFX companies and animation studios from over 50 countries and regions, including two Oscar winners.!Fox Renderfarm RENDERING IS A CHALLENGE AT PIXL VISNFounded in 2012, PIXL VISN media arts academy is Germany's leading educational institution in the field of 3D animation and visual effects (VFX). The training at PIXL VISN was designed in accordance with the training model established in North America and offers students 15 months of intensive production work in conjunction with the theory that is customary in the industry. With its team of passionate and talented professionals in the media industry, PIXL VISN is keen to guide its students on the way to become successful digital media artists. The graduates have worked on well-known projects such as "Game of Thrones", "Avengers: Endgame", "Disney's Dumbo", "Black Panther", "The Walking Dead", "Captain Marvel" and more.The fact is that all of the students at PIXL VISN are constantly working on projects and then rendering them on computers. Besides, these computers are also used for teaching at times, so that it's not possible to render at full power during this time. Although PIXL VISN is constantly upgrading their hardware qualitatively, the issue of rendering always exists. Since the projects become more extensive and detailed over time, PIXL VISN requires more computing power, which is not easy to keep up.!This is what rendering at PIXL VISN looks likeThis is what rendering at PIXL VISN looks like GREAT ADVANTAGES FOR PIXL VISN STUDENTSFox Renderfarm is perfectly aligned with the needs of PIXL VISN. From an ecological perspective, Fox Renderfarm is also notable for the fact that the electricity of its green data center used to run the servers comes from renewable sources such as wind and water energy. Every time you use Fox Renderfarm for rendering, you are making contributions to the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions. In addition, Fox Renderfarm is one of the top render farms in the world with plenty of rendering nodes and flexible resources, which ensure high speed and high quality rendering for students. The rendering time is saved by at least half compared to rendering on students’ computers.!Part of the render nodes © Fox RenderfarmPart of the render nodes © Fox RenderfarmThrough the partnership, all PIXL VISN students will receive render credit at Fox Renderfarm right from the start and will automatically be assigned to the lowest rate. And they will also benefit from Fox Renderfarm’s technical team with professional production experience who can help with any rendering questions and provide valuable tips. In summary, PIXL VISN students can benefit enormously from this collaboration in the future. ENTHUSIASM FOR PARTNERSHIP FROM BOTH SIDESAndrei Stirbu, the founder of PIXL VISN, said, "We are really excited to have Fox Renderfarm as such a powerful and renowned rendering partner. With state-of-the-art technical equipment, rendering still remains a special issue for PIXL VISN, since our students' projects are getting better and more extensive. Especially when project deadlines are getting closer, rendering cannot be underestimated. That's why we are sure that we need to give our students another special advantage through this collaboration."Fox Renderfarm is also delighted about the new collaboration. Whitney Pan, Marketing Specialist at Fox Renderfarm, is responsible for the cooperation and said, "Fox Renderfarm sees a great obligation towards 3D visual effects education and wants to contribute to the further development of the industry. Therefore, we are very proud to collaborate with PIXL VISN and look forward to supporting PIXL VISN students in the future by providing them with the best technological resources."PIXL VISN and Fox Renderfarm are both enthusiastic about the new partnership. The Statement of Cooperation forms a relationship and mutual recognition and commitment to work together for students to have better educational resources. The relationship recognizes the importance of communication, transparency, and policy support based on trust and respect.Your Fox Renderfarm Team

It doesn't always have to be something great, even a small act of kindness can also be considered heroic, even if it is just a good thought it shows that there is a hero in you. Heroes are everywhere, you just have to look closer.”What our jury says:Fox Renderfarm Team: “The coloring, composition, lighting, complexity, children, puppies, and storytelling reminded me of the works of Norman Rockwell.”Graswald Team: “Great image with a great message! I love how the feeling of the city was captured with the grafiti, the trash cans and the smoke. The rain sets the mood while in the back, the sun is shining, showing there’s always hope. ”Productioncrate Team: “Strong composition and good narrative, lovely lightning!”Textures.com Team: “This artwork conveys the concept of what makes a hero in one of the purest forms. Great storytelling. ”Marmoset Team: “Anyone that cares for animals is a Hero in our book!”TopoGun Team: “Indeed, heroes are everywhere. Very nicely rendered and detailed.”Texturebox Team: “There are thousands of good people helping who need it. Kids, men, women, they are real heroes.”Friendly Shade Team: “Great concept! I'd change the focus more towards the person with the dogs by framing it differently, maybe cropping the upper part of the image? The environment is drawing too much of the attention the subject deserves.” 2nd PlaceTitle: Cuddly ProtectorCreated by Jeffrey Frias!Cuddly Protector - Jeffrey Frias- Fox Renderfarm $300 Render Coupon- TopoGun SINGLE license x1- Friendly Shade 1 bundle of texture maps- Graswald ProPersonal license x1- Raysync Large File Transfer 50TB (Pay as you go edition)- ProductionCrate 1 year Pro membership x1- Textures.com 2500 credit pack ($110 value) ×1- Texturebox Patreon Membership x 2 months- $100 Marmoset Shop Gift CardWhat Jeffrey says:“Made for sweet dreams.What our jury says:Fox Renderfarm Team: “In terms of storytelling, this work stimulates the audience’s imagination. The narrative lighting creates a horrible atmosphere that children can accept. The main light outside the window guides the audience to pay attention to the little bear while the lamp leads to the monster behind the door. The setting of the children’s room, the scars on the bear’s body, and the posters on the wall all need plenty of time for in-depth character story background settings. The tension built in the scene also allows the audience to have a creative imagination of the story.”Graswald Team: “I love the idea of this image, and it was executed very well. The pose and the lighting set the mood and I love the details in the room, like the teddy bear holding the toy sword of the child. Great work! ”TopoGun Team: “Good idea, perfect setting, the context (childhood) is where heroes are needed the most in our lives. The artist paid attention to details, lighting and most of all, composition.”Friendly Shade Team: “Love this idea!” 3rd PlaceTitle: Hero's JourneyCreated by Sathish Kumar!Hero's Journey - Sathish Kumar- Fox Renderfarm $200 Render Coupon- TopoGun SINGLE license x1- Friendly Shade 1 bundle of texture maps- Graswald ProPersonal license x1- Raysync Large File Transfer 10TB (Pay as you go edition)- ProductionCrate 1 year Pro membership x1- Textures.com 1000 credit pack ($59 value) ×1- Texturebox Patreon Membership x 1 month- $50 Marmoset Shop Gift CardWhat our jury says:Fox Renderfarm Team: “The psychedelic atmosphere and the grand view of the scene give the audience endless imagination in both the storytelling and character design. The composition, scene settings, and imagination are close to the level of blockbuster design. It is a masterpiece combining art and imagination.”Graswald Team: “This piece has little context, but it captured me instantly with its tone. Displaying heroism as a journey of self-development and showing the hero so small in contrast to the huge world tells a story about what heroism really is all about.”Productioncrate Team: “Nice subject and structure. would have liked to see more variations in the creatures and riders, their positioning seems too cloned. overall narrative and composition are strong.”Textures.com Team: “Super polished artwork with good value structure, color palette and mood. Could easily be a keyframe for an upcoming movie.”Texturebox Team: “It seems to loo a utopic universe. And every utopic universe needs a hero. It reminds me of avatar anime.” Our Sponsors: !TopoGunTopoGunA stand-alone resurfacing and maps baking application.!Friendly ShadeFriendly ShadeHigh-quality textures for 3D artists.!GraswaldGraswaldThe best way to create nature in Blender.!RaysyncRaysyncFast File Transfer Solutions with Reliability and Security.!ProductionCrateProductionCrateTo make top quality video production tools accessible to everyone.!Textures.comTextures.comA website that offers digital pictures of all sorts of materials.!TextureboxTextureboxMaking great textures for free and premium at a low cost.!MarmosetMarmoset3D Real-time rendering, lookdev, & texture barking tools.Thanks to all the participants.

Do you know that 1 in 3 girls in developing countries will be married before 18? Do you know that there are 12 million girls every year forced into child marriage, losing their ability to dream? It is what Sitara: Let Girls Dream, a Pakistani animated short film rendered with Fox Renderfarm, hopes to grow awareness about. Trailer of Sitara: Let Girls Dream Released on 8 March 2020 on Netflix, Sitara: Let Girls Dream, the CG animated short film written and directed by the two-time Academy Award-winning Director Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, tells the story of Pari, a 14-year-old girl who dreams of becoming a pilot while growing up in a society that doesn't allow her to dream. The short film highlights the burdens of a family and the impact of a culture where girls are still struggling to fully realize their dreams. Fox Renderfarm is honored to get involved in this meaningful short film. During the production process, the production team encountered some challenges, especially the rendering part, while the production was running out of time. And the production team asked Ms. Doris Dong for help to choose rendering partner, who is a senior producer with 30 years of global collaboration experience on animation and game and Ms. Doris Dong finally recommended Fox Renderfarm for its mature cloud rendering technology, automated operation procedures and 24/7 professional service.With Ms. Doris Dong’s help and Fox Renderfarm’s fast and secure cloud rendering service, the project was finally completed on time and now the film was successfully released on Netflix, which is Pakistan's first Netflix Original.!Sitara: Let Girls Dream!Sitara: Let Girls DreamSharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, the Director of Sitara: Let Girls Dream, is the recipient of two Academy Awards and seven Emmy Awards.

It’s a movement that we want to start across the world that encourages parents to invest in their girls’ dreams freeing their daughters from the burdens of early marriage." according to the Director.!Sitara: Let Girls DreamFox Renderfarm also hopes that by watching this short film, girls around the world will be inspired to achieve their dreams, and families around the world are willing to invest in young girls’ dreams, making the world more equitable and beautiful.
How to Create a Future Alien Planet Scene in LightWave 3D
!Hum3DHave you imagined that in the future, humans will travel to other planets in spaceships to collect new energy?David Aguero, the 2nd place winner of the Hum3D Space Rover 3D Competition, created such an amazing future scene in his award-winning work The harvest, which was made with LightWave 3D, Substance Painter and Affinity Photo.!The harvest © David Aguero ClayThe harvest © David AgueroAs he introduced, “The new season is here and the harvest begins, soldiers, not farmers, extract the Enerplant, a powerful and green energy that floods the spacecraft engines, making possible star travel. It only grows in the exoplanet B7, in a region claimed by the human alliance, is a deadly business, but very profitable, some say, the new gold fever…”It’s pleased that your TPN-Accredited cloud render farm, Fox Renderfarm, has the chance to have an interview with David Aguero, a 3D generalist and Art Director form Argentina. He talked about how he created the cool space rover and the beautiful alien forest. !David Aguero- David Aguero- Freelance 3D Generalist & Concept Design- From: Argentina- ArtStation: https://www.artstation.com/david_agueroFox Renderfarm: Hi, David! Could you give us a brief introduction about yourself?David: Well, I'm 38 years old, living in Argentina, generally working as Freelance, now an Art Director for a local VFX company. Fantasy and science fiction are my favourite subjects.Fox Renderfarm: Congratulations on winning 2nd place in the Space Rover Challenge, how do you feel about that?David: Thanks! As an artist, winning an art challenge is a big opportunity, not only to win something but to get your work boosted to more people’s eyes, that is great.Fox Renderfarm: What inspired you to come out with the idea of making the work ‘The Harvest’?David: From some time I wanted to design a rover involving a "dome-like" windshield, I also love the AT-ST ( chicken leg transport from Star Wars).!AT-ST from Star WarsAT-ST from Star WarsFox Renderfarm: How long did you take to finish the work?David: I started May 22nd, and ended one day before the deadline (5 of June), so I spent 15 days ( on free time and weekends).Fox Renderfarm: Could you tell us how you designed the space rover?David: I tend to do some concepts in 3D, I use basic shapes to quickly find an interesting design, like sketching in paper then I start to add detail and think about the functionality in the process. You can't see in my entry, what my rover can do. If you look closely you have wheels for long distance travel, legs for complicated terrain and the main pod can detach for diving. :)!space rover!space rover!space rover!space rover!space rover!space roverFox Renderfarm: The amazing work has great composition and details such as the robots and colorful trees, could you tell us how you make the amazing environment?David: I start the terrain base in world creator, then in LightWave 3D, I used a powerful instance system to populate small rocks and vegetation, the giant trees were easy to make, they are basic shapes with some 3D scan barks, I use the instance system to make the ivy, and then I use a unified material for the plant with lots of color variation, very fun to set up with the real-time renderer that LightWave has.!LightWave 3D!LightWave 3DFox Renderfarm: Did you meet any difficulties when creating this work? And how did you solve it?David: The most challenging, was to make the UVs for the rover, too many parts, its takes a lot of time to do it properly, but to save time I didn't do all the UVs, I mirrored half of the rover since it wasn't to be displayed from other angles!!Detail renders of the space rover!Detail renders of the space rover!Detail renders of the space roverDetail renders of the space roverFox Renderfarm: Could you briefly tell us your educational and work experience along your CG journey?David: When I was little I was fascinated with the old stop motion movies ( Ray Harryhausen), then in the 1993 Jurassic Park came out and blow my mind, ( I was 15 years old ) since then, I slowly learn what 3D was, started with the 3D studio for DOS, the use TrueSpace, 3ds Max, Maya and finally LightWave as my main 3D program now. Almost self taught, I went to a college to refine my 3D skills but at the time it was very basic, I have a degree in Multimedia designer, I learned more on the internet though.!The Last Shuttle © David AgueroThe Last Shuttle © David AgueroFox Renderfarm: Do you have any recommendable learning methods to improve professional skills?David: Yes! Before going to an expensive college or institute you can start by looking at online tutorials from the best artist out there, I learned a lot looking through the process of other artists, then, if you are serious about it, an institute can open jobs opportunities, contacts and give you some discipline for work.!Healing © David AgueroHealing © David AgueroFox Renderfarm: Anything else you would like to share with CG enthusiasts?David: Follow big artists, buy tutorials, interact in social networks, don't be lazy, share your work, accept critics, help others!
